San Diego Acting Classes

San Diego Acting Classes

Every day, San Diego actors drive up to Los Angeles for auditions, workshops and classes. While driving up to LA for auditions are a must, many don’t know that there are some good places to take a class a couple miles away from where they live.

Below are some of classes that we think are the best acting classes offered in San Diego. These have either been recommended to us by other actors, ones we’ve heard good things about. This will be an evolving list, so if a new class that we like pops-up, we’ll add it or if we hear that one has gone down hill, we’ll remove it.

    Local community college, universities, and extension, and adult education centers offer a wide range of beginning, intermediate, advanced classes which can be taken for as little as 49.00 per college credti/unit. (Most 12-16 week college classes are 3 units) Mesa College, for example, has great drama, vocal, music,and dance depts. City College has a 40 year track record with tv&radio training for talent and crew. Miramar College, through Prof. Channing Booth, has the premier digital music & voice recording and mixing studio in San Diego thanks to CA state funding proposals. A new performing arts center is slated for the campus as part of its recent upgrade & campus expansion. No need to pay thousands for undergrad level training, save your money for post graduate “fine tuning”. Oh, and generally the community college courses qualify for scholarship, grant, and state & federal financial aid – most of which have NO re-payment requirement. Book grants are also available through several departments on campus. Unlike the college/university level classes, the community colleges are open to anyone she 16+ who wants to register. No prelim.GPA required… 🙂 see for details.
